Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

I am reminded of a song by the group Chicago, that I used to listen to years ago: “Does anybody really know what time it is?”

The lyrics to this song remind me of the time that we are now living in.  Here are a few of the lyrics:

“Does anybody know what time it is?  Does anybody even care?…

People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know the way to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have to think past the last mile
Have no time to look around”

The lyrics to this song are fascinating to me, it’s almost as if the composer knew what was coming and what the world would be like today.

This says it all folks, does anybody really know the time that we are in?  Does anybody even care?  People are on the move, running to and fro just as the bible says.  They are blinded to the truth and don’t know where to go or which way to turn.  They cannot see in front of them, nor can they see past their next step.  They don’t have the time to stop and think about what is happening in the world, or what is coming to the world.

A prophetic song for a prophetic time.  A time in which many are deceived into believing lies and untruths, where the world has twisted and manipulated the good into the bad, and the bad into the good.  Where righteousness and holiness are now seen by the world as wicked and evil.  Believers in the one and only true God of the universe, Jesus Christ, are being mocked, scorned and persecuted for their beliefs.

Ecclesiastes 1:9

“That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.”

As King Solomon wrote thousands of years ago, there is nothing new under the sun.  Society in Israel was the same as the world is today just before the days of their captivity in Babylon.  Their world had crumbled into decay, they turned from God, worshiped false gods and idols, they turned good into evil, and evil into good.  They sacrificed their children to these gods by throwing them into fire.  Lies, untruths, and deceptions were running rampant.  And we see where it led them!

Society today is no different then it was then, in fact I would even argue that it is now worse.  And if it is so, how will God judge us?  When will the wrath of God come upon the wicked of the world?  How much longer can the world continue in such sin and rebellion before the God of the universe dispenses His judgment?  Our God is a patient God, and wishes for none to perish, no, not even the wicked!  But the time is soon coming for just that.  He will not wait forever. 

God is waiting patiently for the lost, the wicked and sinful to turn from their ways, from their rebellion against Him.  He created each and everyone of us and just wants us to love Him and to accept Him.  That’s it!  It’s actually that simple.  It doesn’t take a doctoral thesis to figure it out, anyone can do it.

Don’t let the world deceive you into believing the lies.  Jesus Christ is the only one, true, living God of the universe.  He is the only way to salvation, to heaven, and to eternal life!  He is the Life, the Truth, and the Way!

Accept Jesus Christ now as your personal Lord and Savior!

 Time is running out!

God Bless my friends!  Until next time may the Lord keep you, protect you, and guide you unto the paths of righteousness!

  1. Stop calling the God of the Bible the God of the Universe it makes Him out to be the universal cosmic Christ He is first and foremost the God of Israel. That is who we worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob also known as the God of Israel. he is known more times in the Bible by that name than any other.

    He would prefer to be called by that name so that people don’t make a mistake as to knowing who He really is the Lord and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the God of Israel and stop being politically correct by calling Him the God of the Universe. It annoys me and it annoys Him.

    Where do you think Jesus is coming back to earth from heaven? He is coming back to Israel, to the Mount of Olives where He left from the first time Acts 1:9-11, Zechariah 14 to rule over Israel and the nations from Jerusalem for a thousand years and by the way we will be caught up to be with Him along with the righteous dead those who are asleep in Christ at His physical second coming after the Tribulation and not before.

    We as the true body of believers will be going through the Tribulation as His witnesses it is a time of satan’s wrath and God’s judgments will be coming upon the earth at the same time and we will be protected from God’s wrath through Christ even if we die as martyrs wee go to be with Him However God’s wrath will culminate in His Son’s coming to rescue His Israeli people who will call for Him in the end and will look upon Him whom they have pierced Zechariah 12:10-13:1, Revelation 1:5-7.

    I too am a watcher on the wall and do warm people of what is happening on the earth including Australia and New Zealand as I live down under and am from Australia living in New Zealand, I am not on a web blog but warm people through news journals I write in the Lord. However the Lord told me a few years ago that He prefers to be called the God of Israel.

    Also I have known God’s protection through the Christchurch earthquakes for I have lived through all of them with my family. He kept us save and He told me that they were coming the first one the week it happened on 4 Sept 2010.
    Keep up your good work in Him, God Bless

  3. Thanks for your comment Jennifer. I appreciate your viewpoint. However for me to call my God the “God of the universe” is not incorrect. He is the God of the universe. Just as He is part of the “Trinity”. The bible does not state this, but says it in other ways. Just as the bible does not state the word “bible” or “rapture”, yet we know that they exist.

    The universe is composed of the heavens and all that is in them, created by God Almighty! Therefore He is the God of the universe, and there is no other. He is not only the “God of Israel” Jennifer, He is the God of all things, period! To merely call Him the “God of Israel” would be to minimize Him, making Him a small God, which He is not.

    If you wish to argue over what God desires to be called, then so be it. But I shall not. I know my God and love Him with all of my heart, He lives within me, He leads me, He guides me. So please do not accuse me of blasphemy against the Lord, nothing could be further from the truth. This is neither encouraging, loving, or kind. Please do not forget the fruits of the spirit my friend: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

    If you wish to only call God the “God of Israel”, that is your choice, but it does not mean that God referred to by other names is incorrect or wrong. How do you know that God did not tell me to call Him the “God of the universe”?

    God Bless Jennifer! May the peace and comfort of the Lord be with you!

  4. “Does anybody really know what time it is…?” Very few know the seasons we are living under, let alone the times.
    Well stated Gordon. I was reading Matthew and came upon the purpose of the parables:
    “He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. “For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. “Therefore I speak to them in parables because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. “And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull, Their ears are hard of hearing. And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them. “But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; “for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it. Matt.13:11-17 Thanks again G. for pointing out the obvious. ‘The hearts of the people have grown dull….’ May Our Lord open they’re hearts to understanding. In Jesus’ name I pray. God bless.
